Without a doubt one of the all time greats, FLAWLESS, PERFECT, BRILLIANT

all that and more BUT does anyone else but me think that McNalley is laying it on with the crying business?

Yes. And how would he know? He didn't show up to the party until way late in the day, so it's not like he had first-hand knowledge.

I just re-read McNalleys' book and I found some things that were questionable . But that may be a post in of itself . Liberties taken no doubt .

The quote, or story I should say, was from Wizard the sound man, who was doing acid and working the board, and wandered out of the recording truck to witness the event...

To clarify, here is the story:

"Late in Truckin' I had put a fresh pack of tape on, so thats smooth. And then I hear a microphone fucking up and realize I have to leave- which you never, ever do. Close and lock the truck, go inside, fix the mike and then I let go [of control]- and they went into Morning Dew, and I can't leave. J.G. looks up and sees me and realizes the truck is empty. I nod, and he smiles! He's playing with his back to to the audience, tears streaming down his face, the music playing the band, and the music recording itself. Ecstasy on every level."

Long Strange Trip by Dennis McNally. Page 436.

exactly! and anyone who was there was either too busy working, too high to notice, or were one of the band members too busy playing. Plus they might all be balling and sobbing too so they wouldnt be able to see either haha
